Back in Kathmandu. This is love …
Day 2) One of my places on the earth – Boudhanath area with the beautiful stupa.
The first evening with the lovely girls as, of course, want to borrow our cameras. As usual. They love taking photos. The girl behind is NOT crying, just pretend to 🙂
Day 3) Touching meetings at the sewing fabric. Ranjana, one of the former prostitue is proudly showing us one of her t-shirts.
Another touching meeting – the sweet, little girl who who received an ice cream from us. Happy? Oh yeah …
Day 4) Feeding street children at Pashupati area. They were so happy about the football Julius bought for them. And the t-shirts and cuddly toys we brought from Sweden.
There are different types of games depending on whether you spend time with the little or big girls. Here some posing for the camera … What? Duck faces? We?? Oh no …

End of that day – a delicious dinner and the beautiful sunset over the stupa and the mountains.
Day 6) Girls laugh and joy when they found the photo album I brought from Sweden. There were pics from the big big birthdayparty I arranged for them in March 2012, and they all wanted to look at the pics and talk about the party.
Late evening: THE cocktail. On the house. Made on liquor that breakfast waitress mom did.

Balloon party. Of course.

Day 12) The moment when I was buying shawls in Bakthaphur, and the woman in the shop says ”I recognize you, you were here one year ago also”. Rather fun, indeed.
